himself with it. captioning funded by cbs >>> welcome to "cbs this morning." i'm jeff glor with rebecca jarvis. huge winter storm is making its final stop in the northeast, after causing damage and travel problems coast to coast. >> more than 35 states have felt the power of the storm since it first hit california sunday. it's now blamed for at least 12 deaths, along with the snow it caused more than 40 tornadoes in the deep south, starting on christmas day, and this morning, northern areas of pennsylvania new york and new england have one to two feet of snow on the ground. nearly 500,000 utility customers have lost power. melina shop row is in new york. >> reporter: as the snow continues to fall authorities are urging motorists stay off of the roads. with about a foot of snow already on the ground we're seeing how big and powerful this snowstorm has been. from california to new york the fast-moving storm system that began over the weekend completed its cross-country trek in the northeast, enveloping state after state and heavy snow. >> that's pretty rough. the wet sno
about my good friend, senator jeff bingaman. i think most of the people on his committee feel that he's a good friend. he's been a good friend and mentor to me here in the senate in the years that i've been here, and then also when i arrived in the house we worked with each other. he's been a very good public servant for new mexico and for the united states. and he truly can wear that united states senator proudly. my dad always used to remind me, he used to say -- he said don't forget. you go to represent new mexico, but he says you're a united states senator. and jeff bingaman has worn that title, i think, very, very proudly. jeff is a rare combination of character: brilliant and humble. for jeff, it's about the work. not about his own ego, not about a monument to himself. for three decades in the u.s. senate, he has been making a difference for the american people and for our home state of new mexico. public service is a noble profession when it isn't swamped by money and when it isn't held hostage to partisanship, and jeff is the best example i know of of nobility and politics. by
to be the potential for tornadoes in the southeast and meteorologist jeff berardelli of wfor has more. good morning, jeff. >> good morning, rebecca. already getting active out there, especially in parts of texas and louisiana. severe thunderstorm warnings are ongoing. the reason for it is right now we have a lot of energy in the atmosphere and what that's causing is the potential for a widespread severe weather outbreak. winds out of the southeast and winds out of the southwest and that causes spinning in the atmosphere or wind sheer. this is a powerful system. a lot of the thunderstorms are going to become rotating super cell thunderstorms. we expect probably a lot of tornadoes and some of them could be on the strong side during the day today. >> all right, jeff, merry christmas. thanks so much. >>> christians around the world are celebrating the birth of jesus. pope benedict delivered his annual christmas day message talking about what he called the slaughter in syria. earlier he talked about the need for god in a technology-driven world. and crowds packed manger square in be
to bring these jobs back. >> what do you think about jeff immelt's article where he says i'm bringing jobs back to america makes more economic sense. >> he was bringing jobs back to america. i wasn't prepared for this quiz this morning. i can tell you from memory, he brought a bunch of jobs back in lexington, kentucky. >> he is stoned. >> get lexington, kentucky out. >> do you feel like we do? we're going to kick out with frampton after he's done with this answer. >> he brought back a bunch of jobs at lexington, kentucky but at much lower wages. >> what kind? >> it was appliance jobs. >> they have the huge apply hans city down there and all these massive buildings and their own zip code and one building after another closed down. he's starting up one assembly line after another. are they going to get paid $30 an hour? no. >> here's the point. how do you have a ro best recovery when you have wage compression, people who made $30 an hour making $14 an hour. how do you grow an economy like that. >> the point is do we want these jobs building in germany or alabama. want them in lexington, kent
. that underwrites the risk. that is one of two binding constraints on our economy. >> eliot: before jeff i give him his moment, the reason i disagree is there are trillions of dollars of capital signature on the sidelines not being allocated and not being allocated for a host of reasons primarily a demand crisis and the government given deficit, spends it. in consumption and its own investment, that seems to me to be the trigger we need to get the economy going. jeff, tell me why you disagree with me or ed. >> i do agree with you eliot. the proof of the pudding is the fact that we did cut tax rates on the rich in the early 2000s under president bush. they're the job creators, the investors, we got a bad economic recovery in expansion. virtually no job creation in that period. the reason is by in large what you're talking about. cutting tax on the rich is not the way to get growth. especially when taxes are already low. the way to get growth now is that we need more demand stimulus and the real danger is all this talk abou

, is jeff immelt's cozy relationship with the president costing general electric shareholders money? we will be discussing it. and i lost on friday when i questioned "the washington po " post's" claim that the senate would be better with more women. i'm not done debating that. more coming up on this program today. and we want to hear from you as well. send your e-mails to varney@foxbusiness.com and we read them on the air. and we read all of them, by the way. i've got news, clearwire selling itself to sprint for $2.97 a share and sprint raised its offer by 7 cents. some clearwire shareholders wanted and expected more. that stock is down. sprint is up, it's getting what people consider a good deal, at least that's what the market is saying. it's up what, 4 cents, not much. aig selling the rest of its asian insurance unit it's going to bring in 6.5 billion dollars. that was the jewel in the aig empire, being sold. general electric, meeting with investors in new york today. on friday it raised its dividend, but it will pay it next year. not good for shareholders because if taxes go up, th

of united states taxpayers' money dropped on the senate next thursd thursday. >> alisyn: he wants to -- jeff sessions is saying the real fiscal cliff deadline should be when the lawmakers return from break, thursday. if the deal is not proposed by then, there won't be enough time to review and ratify it. we can't afford to vote on a deal without thoroughly reading it first. well, is a serial killer on the loose this morning in michigan? there are new concerns being raised because police just made another gruesome discovery in a drain pipe. this is the second time in four months that they've found human remains there. police have now sent the remains to a lab in texas. and the investigators want today determine if the retains matched body parts which belonged to an unidentified female. one of the president's biggest backers on capitol hill, the progress of election day on immigration reform, in a new interview, democratic illinois congressman gutierrez says, quote, it's great that eva longoria is it out there meeting with the president, but maybe meeting some of the immigrant community to pol
santelli always clean shaven is joining us next working on something for a little later on. >> we have jeff carter. we're going to talk about the fiscal cliff but from a much more cynical perspective. he believes that the cbo's call, if we go over the cliff in recession, well, he doesn't believe him. he says there is a keynesian base. what does it mean? he too cynical? i don't know. tune in in about 11 minutes to find out. >>> financials and the fiscal cliff plus the looming february stress tests is the big bank runup of this year finally coming to a close? brad hintz is an equity research analyst and joins us from new york. good to see. good morning. >> thanks for having me. >> new year is going to be fascinating to watch. dodd frank implementation. let's just talk about the rules first. investors know these are coming and why are the stocks trading up in light of what we know is going to be a different kind of year? >> well, one reason that you've seen the runup is a lot of the uncertainty seems to be to be working away. the banks are making the changes to live in this post basal 3 dodd/f
for worldwide aging population. i expect ge to be very upbeat. i think jeff immelt's going to tell a good story. some of that's because the company just boosted its dividend by 12% today p. you don't do that if you're doing poorly. the meeting will be the most talked about event of the day, maybe even the week other than the fiscal cliff. next up, oracle reports on tuesday after the close. i normally like oracle going to earnings. i heard so many rumblings of a better than expected quarter that it makes me nervous given the stock rallied some 25% on the year. the quarter's got to be lights out or we can see beatdown. wednesday morning we get a result from the exact opposite of oracle's general mills. nothing like -- this one just kind of goes up a little bit each quarter, delivers superior returns over a long period of time. and allows you to sleep at night. general mills hasn't done anything of late. but do you pocket that fine dividend, hold on, leisurely ride. stephanie link and i were talking about the stock last night. she's the co-director of actionalertsplus.com, my charitable trust. it'

arizona, jeff flake. and mr. speaker, i have no doubt whatsoever that the other body will never be the same. when the gentleman from arizona steps in to that other chamber. and because of his leadership, many come here and serve, they speak with eloquence, they represent their values, they represent their constituents, but, mr. speaker, not all that many leave this institution and can look themselves in the mirror and know they have made a difference. the gentleman from arizona has made a difference in the people's house than have the people's money been spent. mr. speaker, it's a challenging time in our nation's history. there's much turmoil. i know many may question madison's mad genius in providing for this thing called divided government. it's sloppy, it's messy, it gets a little noisy. it's not always efficient, but it has produced the greatest, freest, most prosperous republic in the history of mankind and that divided government is played out in this institution by nobel men and women -- noble men and women. i find my voice most inadequate to honor the work of these two g
and member of the house foreign affairs committee, mr. jeff duncan. good to have you on. first of all, why haven't we heard from hillary clinton? i understand concussions. i know them all too well. but really? three, four weeks now to testify? >> well, she needs to testify and i think she will. i'm optimistic she will. her office verified she was ill. i know the travel schedule, she gets worn down. i'll give her the benefit of the doubt. she needs to come testify. she was the person in charge at the department of state on september 11 when the attack in benghazi happened. and there are questions that need to be answered. >> kelly: there have been some people who criticized hillary clinton for what happened in benghazi and because of that, there has been the innuendo that she didn't want to testify. however, i don't see that being part of her character. she will testify this month, because she would like to put this to rest before she actually retires. >> i think she will. i think it's about her legacy now. she was in charge. i think she's willing to come and testify. she always ha

, good morning to you jeff. >> good morning, thanks for having me on. >> i would say so. and it's a little rough on the n.r.a., but if you look at the overall approval rating, they think higher than president obama and higher than the media covering as well. >> dave: maybe the speech from wayne lapierre didn't represent perfectly members of the n.r.a. i know, some weren't happy about maybe the lack of consoling to the victims and maybe some sensible proposal for some sort of reform in this country and maybe that's the problem here is that speech may not exactly represent the n.r.a. members in this country. >> right, now, i think the n.r.a. does have some pr issues to work out, you know and leading up to that press conference, they talked a lot about some major reforms and probably left a little people wondering, probably expecting something a little bit bigger. >> dave: the n.r.a. has millions of members and when you're talking about the mainstream media, it's all in this tiny bubble here in the northeast, has very little representation of most of the people in this country that
investigative correspondent jeff rossum is here with that story. >> we've heard a lot about adam lanza and we've heard a lot about his mother, but now we have new information about his relationship with his father, peter. a source close to the family tells nbc news adam had cut off communication with his dad, even refusing to see him. in the chaotic hours after adam lanza's rampage, a local reporter showed up at his father's doorstep to break the news. >> his face went from patient to surprise to horror. it was pretty clear to me that he was surprised that somebody he loved was involved with what was happening up in newtown. >> reporter: peter lanza is a successful finance executive at ge, part owner of nbc universal. a source close to the family says in 2001, he separated from adam's mother, nancy, but he still saw adam every week. in 2009, the lanzas officially divorced. adam was 17. >> they were the type of parents, even when they were married as well as being separated, if the kids had a need, they would definitely fill it. >> reporter: but the source says by 2010, peter lanza was dating
the first person, was the receptionist, she was great. and jeff brown, he took me through it. it wasn't a hard sales pitch. in fact, we couldn't even do anything for two weeks. so in that time we started with the orientation and training and every time we did, took a step closer and it was good. >> steve: it's been great for you so far. i know you've been a stay at home mom. you were looking for something. now your brother could actually work for you if he chooses. david, this is the kind of story you're looking for. >> exactly right. we have 30 master territories in operation presentsly with approximately 2200 unit franchisees such as yvonne and look for additional veterans to come in at a higher level to purchase these master territories. hence our discounted program. >> steve: got you. this is a company that specializes in janitorial services, right? >> yes. all business to business. >> steve: all right. so you've already got two businesses who have said, you needs? we want your business to clean our business. >> that's right. i'm cleaning up. >> steve: you are cleaning up. it's tu
is the minister, the father is the father, the sun is the son and jeff government. so if everyone in his, and i should say or her place though confucianism doesn't leave much fun for the element. and that within the region and with the world as china looks at, a sense of harmony, japan would be law, that sense of harmony and how you would achieve it is that their frustration is that the work is not just acquiescing to the notion that they are a rich country, that they are returning, that they're powerful, that they want respect. and they want to see the world kind of step back and give it greater latitude, but doesn't see this. this is what i think whether i personally think we are on a collision course. because when you look at what china's expectations of the world are, you also look at its paranoia, you look at jim, i'd love to hear utah, you're such an expert insider, what's going on in the cyber world. you see something which seems hard to me, despite her best efforts in not one to replace history, that the rise of a great power usually and often leads to messiness. usually and often leads
on the basic structure of the income tax for that year. >> host: we'll go to jeff in tampa, florida, independent caller. >> caller: good morning, how you doing? >> host: good morning, sir. >> caller: yes, i have a question for mr. buckley, and this is more -- it may be a little generic, but something that a couple of my friends and i have talked about and just trying a basic understanding of. instead of having an income tax, has there ever been any discussion about having a national or a federal sales tax to help offset so this way everyone from the rich to the poor, everyone pays the same amount? i mean, i'm not sure the exact amount that you would have to pay, i'm not an economists, but it's just something we've always thought about, and i was just curious what mr. buckley thought. >> guest: well, there were proposals in the middle '90 from then-republican ways and means committee chairman bill archer to totally repeal the income tax and replace it with a national sales tax. they never went anywhere for a variety of reasons, the first is the rate of the tax would have to be extrao
to give this president that kind of power. host: jeff, good morning. caller: good morning. with republicans being cornered as far as the blame, why don't the republicans just vote and pass bills and sent it to the senate and put it in the hands of democrats and let's see what comes down the road. if it crashes, it crashes. it away, the democrats need to take responsibility. guest: we have to do what is necessary to correct the deficiencies of our operating national business. when you say the republicans should take a position and do what is right, the american people are in the dark of how negotiations work. if you are serious about negotiations and about solving the fiscal cliff -- it is a fiscal slide because you keep sliding. i have learned that if you want to negotiate and come to compromises and conclusions, you do that without cameras and you do that behind closed doors. once the negotiations are exposed, people react differently and they are compromise. we need to get away from the cameras. the president and john boehner, get away from their staffs and do a give-and
that. but let's not act as though they are rating and putting every jeff picoli in jail. that is not true. but in places like california or colorado where perception of marijuana being harmless increases to a "t." i put that in the video that people can see online. usage among teenagers increases. even though no one is saying hey, kids, go ahead and light up. what happens if it's legalized, it's legalized under the premise it's harmless so teenagers say that as a license to smoke up. if i said anything that offends anybody -- go ahead. >> aren't you making a progressive arguement that the government needs to step in because the parents aren't well enough to educate their children that they shouldn't be smoking pot. we need government to say you can't smoke pot because it's bad for you? >> i'm not saying the government should step in. we should educate people. if they're pro-legalization, this is about education. if you have a problem, i'm easy to find. tweet me on twitter. >> smoke them if you've got them. stein, thank you to see you as always. we vehicle more fox and fr
. because senator jeff sessions just put out, in i think october, the senate budget committee look at all the programs and what the average family beneficiary was on all the social welfare programs, it's around $50,000 a year. her family. think about that. -- per family. that's without taxes. that's greater than the family income in the united states. so we have now moved those, and this is not tonight anybody who really needs our help. but what we have now done is we have a safety net that a sequel -- that is equal to average per capita income in this country. and so what that does is it takes away any incentive to better yourself because you are equal with everybody else in terms of benefits. that's significant. very significant in terms of motivations, in terms of people bettering themselves, in terms of people reaching higher. that's a worrisome statistic host back shannon, portland, oregon, good afternoon. this is booktv on c-span2. >> caller: hello. i want to start off by saying you're a great men of integrity and it's a pleasure to talk to you. >> guest: thank you. >> caller: i'm a
, jeff sessions, staff calculation of data from the congressional budget office and the office of management and budget, the president's plan suggests that roughly 75% of $1.2 trillion in new revenue be directed to new spending instead of deficit reduction. the fiscal cliff must be averted to protect our economy for future generations. yesterday, house speaker john boehner asked the president to identify specific cuts he's willing to make for a balanced approach. i hope the president will take immediate action so progress can be made for a bipartisan solution. in conclusion, god bless our troops and we will never forget september 11 and the global war on terrorism. the speaker pro tempore: the time of the gentleman has expired. the chair recognizes the gentleman from new york. >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. mig-ins: mr. speaker, there are many lessons to be learned in the wake of the hurricane that devastated parts of new york and new jersey. one of which is the importance of electronic m
